Starting as a model in a major market is no easy task. While it is true that New York City is home to many top male modeling agencies, they are increasingly selective in the talent they represent. Here are some quick tips to Find the Best Male Modeling Agents in NYC.
Start Small – Look for Boutique Agencies
Modeling is an industry female models dominate. Top Modeling Agencies such as Ford Models specialize in major talent placement. Because Female Models tend to earn more money then Male Models, big model agencies cater to them. Smaller boutique, top notch agencies like ReQuest Models or VNY Models have supermodel male talent. Try to seek agencies like these when starting your search in a market like New York.
Measure Up – Unless you are over 6 Feet Tall, Look for a model agency with a commercial division.
While an inch or two doesn’t seem like much, it can make or break a potential Models career. Unless you have the exact measurements an agency is looking for, look for an agency that has a commercial or print division. Commercial talent come in all shapes and sizes. MSA Models New York has a lifestyle division and is a good option for new talent looking to get signed in New York City.
